Thankful for so many things this year. Some are happy thanks and some are sad. Have you ever been thankful for a sad event? My sister-in-law fought a battle with cancer the first of the year. We’ve all moved on since her “Home Going” on February 26th. This thanksgiving season will be so different! Since I now care for my mother-in-law in our home our celebration will be at a different location for my husbands family.
Then my father went into a nursing home this past February and that has been a challenge.. If you don’t have a loved one in that type of facility it’s like pulling teeth to even get to see them. Since all the Covid scare has been in this world I believe I’ve seen my father twice, wearing a mask not being able to touch him staying 6 feet apart-- traveling 2 hours for their allowed 15 minutes!! He has the beginnings of dementia and this is not helping him at all! Hopefully if the facility doesn't change their stipulations we will be Seeing him for Thanksgiving!
I have always hosted Thanksgiving(past 30 years) and love decorating my home for that season. This year we will be having Thanksgiving at my brothers house and my Father will be there, yes he'll have to quarantine for 14 days after returning but he wants to come.
Goodness Vicki you say get on with the blog post! Well I just had to make a wall hanging for my home even though we're not hosting. I bought the wooden Gather with Grateful Hearts wall hanging, It's so easy to take something nice yet a little plain and spruce it up with a little stamping, coloring, and cutting fun. What do you think?
